Character building, but not anything specific introduction Rants and Rambles

What is something that you feel artistically holds you back?

This isn’t a tutorial how to fix anything, more of a rant. I just want to map out things that I do and do not like in my art.

So, I notice that I don’t have any backgrounds at my big age of 22 in my art. It’s absolutely irritating that I have to see my art but there’s no background. Partially it’s because I don’t know how to process a character in a background. People tend to do some mild bullying when a background isn’t present and will say your character is floating randomly in space…

I struggle drawing characters. It’s even more difficult to draw the background and the character in the background. I think it has to do with embarrassment and fear. I’m scared at messing and making something ugly. I don’t care about the ugly until I have to turn things in for a grade.

I have to draw backgrounds or I don’t think the artwork is good. I think I’ve experienced enough.

Another thing is my unwillingness to draw bodies and learn how to draw realistic.

I don’t know, maybe I’m just upset because I have art burnout.

I want to set of goals list to do my art with. I want to with my art.

  • Draw some characters I have — three to five right now.
  • Record progress.
  • Design three character’s worlds (the background and foreground around them and their actions and how they move.
  • Add words and how they talk to the pictures.
  • Add more abstraction to characters going through something unexplainable and metaphysical.
  • Draw more thumbnail sketches and do some color studies.

Welcome to my blog.

I don’t know why I named it why I did, but it’s my blog.

Anyways, I am twenty-two as of now and I’m Black and somewhere in the nonbinary spectrum. I am an artist foremost, but I have other interests.

This is a (older) picture of Noje.

I make a variety of characters and draw them out. Here’s some from one story I have. It looks like a lot of characters but there’s only a few that are main. Some of them just look nice so I draw them a lot. I don’t really like character charts but I may post about them. I’m also very lazy.

One thing is that I wrote the characters chosen pronouns or ones they’re okay with. Some of them frequently are misgendered or they may not look like how they appear. Too bad. Characters without a listed pronoun can be called anything—they likely just don’t care about anything.

If you consider this cringy, I’m sorry but you’d probably have a headache with all my content because I’m that ho. And I mean, they are lines on a 2D background and I’m a 3D walking bag of flesh, if you want to be cheeky you can misgender the characters or me but I don’t know what you’d gain out of it.

I may absolve my chronic laziness and post about them. Also, y’all are free to use the names on the pictures. However those are filler names. I supplied y’all with cultural names. I will write about that later.

Have a nice one and stay safe and make sure to take care of yourself.
